10 Worst Gifts For Girls, According To Actual Girls


Everyone knows you're not supposed to say you don't like a gift, no matter how much you fantasize about taking a match to it. If you're like Rachel on Friends, you probably exchange every gift you get — making you the most hated Secret Santa pick — just to avoid hurting anyone's feelings because it's the thought that counts. Cute as that might be, it doesn't necessarily compensate for a bad gift. Some of the worst gifts for girls will definitely leaving you wondering if any thought went into the gift-giving process at all.

I still vividly remember the worst gift I've ever received from a partner. It was a silver necklace with what I assumed was supposed to be a heart-shaped pendant in the middle. Except, the pendant looked a lot more like a kidney bean than a heart. In fact, it even sort of resembled an anatomical heart. I spent several days trying to figure out if it was actually meant to be something else.

Nevertheless, I could tell that gift meant a lot to the person who had given it to me and, for that reason, I wore it all the time. It was heavy and odd but I didn't really care. It definitely wasn't as weird as the heart-shaped bar of soap I received from a different partner a few years later. To be fair, the soap smelled amazing and I actually repurchased it for myself several times that year.

Sure, they weren't the best gifts ever, but neither of these gifts compares to the absolute horrors these 10 girls have endured. All I'm saying is, you can't go wrong with a puppy for Christmas.

Obviously, no thought went into this gift.

Nothing says, "Welcome to the family," quite like this. Although the gift was thoughtful, the delivery was not.
